The Specialization of Sensibility in Raw Material State into Stabilized Pictorial Sensibility, Le Vide

"The object of this endeavor: to create, establish, and present to the public a palpable pictorial state in the limits of a picture gallery. In other words, creation of an ambience, a genuine pictorial climate, and, therefore, an invisible one. This invisible pictorial state within the gallery space should be so present and endowed with autonomous life that it should literally be what has hitherto been regarded as the best overall definition of painting: radiance.
Yves Klein, Sorbonne lecture 1959 (Klein 1982"
